This has nothing to do with Outlook. This is more about what happens and what’s expected whin JAWS is forced into Application mode, such as Windows File Explorer as mentioned.

Hello Don:


I am not sure about what program you are speaking. If Outlook, then there is no applications mode, or there should not be such.


More data is appreciated here.

Hi, I’m looking at an Component that puts JAWS into Application mode.

Then I hear “press F6 to access the search pane.

Tie issue is that developer doesn’t know why this F6 message is happening. Is this a product of using Application mode/ I tried this in File Explorer and did not get this message.

Any suggestions or thoughts would be interesting and most appreciated.
